  1. Fiverr Community,Fiverr celebrated ten years at the beginning of this year. When we started the company back in 2010, it was the year marking a decade in which freelancing became mainstream, widely chosen by many worldwide as a way of life and used by many businesses to get things done. We believe that 2020 marks the beginning of a decade in which freelancing will take another step forward, a decade in which businesses will learn how to effectively integrate freelancers into their workflows and benefit from having access to the best talent in the world with just a few clicks. This is a massive win for our way of life and for the culture we are building together. Ten years ago, we had a dream – a dream of building the world’s largest community, connecting talented people from around the world with businesses that need that talent. Today, we are the largest and fastest-growing community we dreamed of, but our book is far from being entirely written. In fact, we wake up every morning infused with a desire to help this incredible community grow and make our platform even better so that anyone who uses it will be able to make more from it and pursue their dreams. Our brand symbolizes home for so many of you, and today we are introducing a new chapter in our brand. We have refreshed our logo and we are launching a new brand campaign updated with a more modern approach, but one that is true to our origins. You have been in the center of every intersection of our doing, from the product we created for you to the moment of ringing the bell on Wall Street a year ago. Our community has always been there, and in this new brand campaign, it is you that is there, again, proving the strength and diversity of our global talent. We are honored to share this new campaign with you and are positive that you will love it as much as we enjoyed creating it. Here’s to writing another chapter together and changing how the world works. Micha Founder & Chief Executive Officer

  6. In the past, I’ve written a few guides like [Guide] How to Rank Your Gig for Better Results on Fiverr here on the forum. It turned out to be quite popular. This time, I’ve decided to tackle the responses to buyer requests on this great platform, simply because they’re a part of the experience that’s not quite so great as the rest! I’m both a seller and an active buyer, so I can perhaps give some insight into both sides of the requests, and how you as a seller can write actionable answers that lead to more sales and less work. Yes, I believe that’s possible. Without further ado, let’s dive in! Which requests to answer and the ones to ignore This might come as a surprise to some of you, but answering fewer requests might get you more sales with less work. Think about it; if you respond to every request that becomes available to you, you’re likely to spend less time on each request. That means your replies will be less focused, and you’ll probably be answering some requests that are simply not worth your time. If you carefully consider each request in your category, and you pick out the ones with the most interesting projects at the right budget, you’ll likely be spending more time on each request. And that’s the trick here; the idea is to not pump out as many answers as possible, but the best possible answers you can craft on the best possible requests you can find. Let’s say you’re responding to 10 requests per day. Of these 10, maybe 3 of them have a budget of more than 20 dollars. If you’re gonna take the time to carefully read each request and then craft a perfect, individual response (more on that later) to all of them, you’re likely spending a lot of time every day, while not getting much in return. But if instead, you pick the top 3 requests (the ones with the best budget, requirements for your skill-set, and well-written instructions) you can instead spend a bit more time to craft a great response to those particular requests. That will increase your chances of landing the best orders, that pay more while spending less time sending requests that will be filtered out anyway. As a buyer, I know this; 9 out of 10 answers gets filtered out when I’m going through the answers! That brings me to the next part: Write laser-focused responses The #1 reason that I filter out replies to my requests is because of copy-paste answers. As a buyer, I almost instantly know if the reply has been copy-pasted or custom written for me. So don’t do it. Not if you want to land a sale, that is. Spend time crafting a personal response to each request. Let me provide some examples (real examples from real requests!): The wrong way: Me (buyer): I’m looking for someone to write a skyscraper article on How To Become a Voiceover Artist. My minimum requirements are a native level of English, and the article length is 5000 words. My name is Leo, and I run a voiceover blog. The goal of this article is to beat every other guide on how to become a voiceover; in essence, creating the ULTIMATE GUIDE on the subject. Seller response: Hello dear sir… 🙂 I can be your perfect ebook writer for all your projects and I also do web design to make SEO stand out! Let me be your man for the job! I’m certified SEO and also offer backlinks and have worked on hundrests of perfect projects. Ok. So there’s a ton of problems with this response. I’ll get to the grammar, punctuation, and spelling issues later. You could also check out my guide Why grammar is super important for us sellers. For now, let’s focus on the fact that this seller never even read my request. If he did, he certainly didn’t care! The reply is copied and pasted to every request this seller can find. First of all, I never asked for someone to write an eBook, nor did I ask for a web designer. It took me less than one second to determine that this response wasn’t written for me and that the seller doesn’t care for a second about my project. So why would I hire this seller? The right way: Me (buyer): I’m looking for someone to write a skyscraper article on How To Become a Voiceover Artist. My minimum requirements are a native level of English, and the article length is 5000 words. My name is Leo, and I run a voiceover blog. The goal of this article is to beat every other guide on how to become a voiceover; in essence, creating the ULTIMATE GUIDE on the subject. Seller: Hi, Leo! I’ve read your request for an author to write your ultimate guide on how to become a voiceover artist. I would love to work with you to create this guide. Let me tell you a bit about me and my work, so you’ll be able to decide if I’m the right guy for this project. I’ve been working as a writer for more than 10 years, and in that time I’ve written thousands of articles on various subjects ranging from tech news to lifestyle content. I’ve worked with both large and small companies to help them stand out in the crowd of online content. I pride myself on being on-time, every time, and I believe the quality of my work speaks for itself. Here are some examples: (buyers lists some examples). Let me know if you have any questions! I’d love to hear from you. So what did this seller do right? Well: everything. First of all, he proved in the very first sentence that he’d read my request all the way through. How? Noticed I used my name in the request? This seller noticed and addressed me by my name in the beginning. Not every buyer will do that, but if you take the time to read and understand the request, you’ll notice that there’s almost always something you can mention early on in your response to show that you’ve taken an interest. You’ll also see that the seller mentioned the project itself (ultimate guide etc…) and proved that he knew what this project was about. Second of all, the grammar is great. This seller proves by his response that he has an understanding of the English language, punctuation, and grammar. If a buyer is looking for a writer you’re almost guaranteed to be filtered out before they even read the first line through to the end if your reply is full of grammatical errors. If you can’t spell, don’t try to be a professional writer until you’ve learned the language properly. As a footnote: the seller didn’t call me “sir”, “madam” or “dear”. This is usually an indicator that the seller isn’t very knowledgeable about the culture or language. Read more about that in my guide: How to communicate across cultures and countries when doing business on Fiverr. Wrapping up: When crafting your responses to the requests, write unique and tailored responses to each one. Don’t copy-paste, especially in the introduction! Don’t mention skills that are not relevant. Be polite, and make sure your response is made up of relevant, grammatically correct content. Be personal: try to find elements of the request that you can use as an identifier right at the start to prove that you did read the request before responding. Respond to fewer requests, but spend more time on each request. Pick the ones with a good budget. As a bonus tip: I’d recommend to not massively underbid. If the buyer lists a budget of 100 dollars, don’t offer to do the job for 10 dollars. First of all, the buyer probably won’t take you seriously. If someone is willing to write 5000 words for 10 dollars they probably aren’t very skilled, and if they are, they certainly don’t know their value. By picking low-end jobs you’re undervaluing yourself, and you’re inviting “bad buyers” to the table. And they can be difficult to handle, believe me. I’ve written a guide on the Top 5 Communication Skills You Need When Dealing With Difficult Buyers too, so be sure to check that out! I hope this guide helps you out with your responses! Have you tried using these tips to craft actionable answers to buyer requests? Let me know how it went! Stay safe! Leo

  10. You better get used to it. It happens very often. When a buyer tells you that they will be back, you should just expect them to not do so. I have noticed that they rarely do when they say that. Letting you wait may not be the most polite thing to do, but your buyer does not owe you any explanation for why they did not choose to order from you. Maybe the buyer found someone else, maybe the document got delayed, or maybe they simply changed their mind.

  14. Quick update: buyer refused to cancel twice but CS had my back and cancelled on my behalf. They’re also investigating the buyer. This buyer was part of some new business affiliate thing on fiverr. Anyone familiar with that? I got a notification saying to deliver excellent work to “earn their trust and get more orders with their team.” Give me a break. How about buyers earn my trust first? I hate having to sing and dance for people who can’t even be polite at the most basic level.

  18. Hello, ***************. The guy in this gig is a liar and sends fake hits to people because I am promoting them on social media. In this way, the customer buys over and over again, but of course this is not written in his gig. My gig in honestly sending hits was deleted when I wrote, 60 days later I received 15 orders. Why does Fiverr confirm wiper gig? Mod Note: 📋 Profile url removed. It is against the Forum Rules to negatively call out a buyer or seller. You may send the username to Customer Support if the user has actually violated the Fiverr Terms of Service, but the public forum is not the right place forrname call-outs. I m boring…

  22. If you want more orders, here’s what you need to do: You need to research, understand, and reach out to your target customers. You need to Study, Understand, and Connect. The only people who will hire you, are the people who need your services. So, if you want them to hire you, you need to understand who they are, what they like, and and what they need. Then, you need to determine how your valuable skills can solve their needs. I’ll say that again – THEIR NEEDS, not your needs – not what you want. THEIR needs. And, once you’ve done those things, then you need to find creative ways to connect to those target customers, and show them why you are the best person, with the right skills, to help them complete their projects. You are not here for you. You are not here to get rich. You are here to HELP OTHER PEOPLE. The more successful you become at helping others, the more those people will trust you, respect you, and want to work with you again and again. Fiverr is not a get-rich-quick website. It is a help-buyers-get-done marketplace. You are either here to work… or here to watch. You also need to realize that you are competing against thousands of other sellers, all of whom are offering the same exact services you offer. If you aren’t getting the kind of sales you want, then maybe those other sellers are doing a better job reaching the same customers you want. You are not guaranteed orders just because you want them, and you are not guaranteed orders just because you have gigs here on Fiverr. If you want to improve your odds of being a marketable seller – study your competition. Figure out what works for them, and find ways to make those things work for you too. Most importantly, DO NOT blindly imitate other sellers. DO NOT copy-paste what they write. DO NOT steal their gig images. Be you. Be unique. Buyers do not hire copycats. They hire original sellers who know how to stand out because of who they are – unique sellers who exude confidence, and can prove their abilities. Your target customers want to hire the best person for their job. Is that best person you, or is that best person your competition? Study. Understand. Connect. This is how you earn orders. This is how you find success.

  30. What an odd message. Next thing you know they are gonna tell you they’ll send you $500, but first you need to do a small job for them. And then, after you submitted that, they will give you another job, this time more serious. You will be entrusted with confidential documents, and any leaks, so they promise you, will mean the “end of your collaberation”. They emphasize on that part by sending you a picture of their Yakuza tattoos. Now you realize that you were catfished by the Japanese Mafia. From now on they control every one of your gigs and make you do their bidding. Slaving away for the next months and ongoing, but at least the pay is good. Every night when you go to sleep, you keep thinking about the day where you wondered whether to trust your own senses. Too late now, Nate. Deeper down the rabbit hole you go.

Haha, I had someone tell me they would place the order over the weekend, and last night I checked their profile and they had blocked me 😂 I don’t think about it too much, and whilst I agree that it can be frustrating, no one has an obligation to order from you and they could’ve easily found someone better, cheaper or both. It is what it is.

  35. (This was originally a reply in another topic. But I found it could be interesting for somebody here) So, I am a musician. First, I only had one gig of music transcription. But, after my first order, I wasn’t getting orders frequently. I started using bueyer requests A LOT, trying my best to write the better offer for each bueyer, and… nothing. It wasn’t working. So I created more gigs, one for production, other for mixing, etc. I I tried to make really colorful thumnails, with the keywords of the gig IN the image. Also, the MOST IMPORTANT in my opinion: using the right keywords. You have to use strong keywords, that people will actually search for. Example: for music transcription, what are the best keywords? Ok, sheet music, transcribe, guitar, piano, etc. This will rank your page better. Also, try to start with lower prices before you get reviews. I kept using buyer requests, and then I started getting orders. Not SO much in the total: 10 orders in more than 130 offers lol. But it is a start, a very good one! In buyer requests, I find one buyer that turned into a friend, and he is now in his 4th order with me. This is very important, I think - I turned 1 order into 4 orders (propably more). Usually, something that happens to me: I change the image of the gig, and then, in the same or next day, a buyer messages me ordering my gig. I think the thumbnail and the title are the two most important things. If you search for “mixing and mastering”, almost ALL the thumbnails look the same. You have to be different! Why would people click on your gig? Try do answer that for yourself. Well, after that, I kept getting orders. But one day, it was absolutely crazy. I really don’t know why. It was FRIDAY NIGHT(maybe that’s important) and I delivered a job for a buyer, who gave me 5 stars and a $5 TIP (important). 24 hours later, 7 or buyers messaged me, and I could get 6 orders AT THE SAME TIME. That never happened before lol. So that was the “climax” for me. Now, I keep getting orders, 4 or 5 a week, which is totally good for me! Also, when a buyer messages you, BE FAST! If you don’t answer in a few minutes he will probably find another seller. In resume, my tips: 1- Good thumbnail and title with keywords 2 - Create the maximum of gigs (7 for no level seller) 3 - Use buyer requests 4 - Try to give your buyer a PERFECT service. He is giving you money. Always have it in mind. You are not doing him a favor. You want your buyer to love your work SO much, that he will give you a tip for the incredible result. And this tip will probably increase your gig ranking (probably, this was my experience) 5 - Be fast 6 - Talk to your buyer like you would talk to a FRIEND. The buyer wants a friendly seller, imagine like in real life. He doesn’t want a robot that just talks yes, no, that’s the price. Imagine if you were the buyer - how would you want the seller to talk with you? 7 - NEVER GIVE UP! *Almost forgot about it: I tried self-promoting myself in sites like reddit, facebook, twitter. It didn’t work. Maybe Instagram is the best one. But make sure you promote your SERVICE, not your Fiverr gig. If someone is interest in your work, then you send the Fiverr link. Just a quick tip

  36. So this guy was not happy with his work, so he posted this in buyer requests, and posted a second one about how he hates certain people, I contacted the guy he was reporting and asked for the guys name because I couldn’t see it and the guy hasn’t got back to me. I wanted to report the guy that sent the buyer request as spam, but I don’t know his name Screenshot 2020-09-13 at 10.59.37 AM1159×150 12.5 KB
